[closed] Annoying Yellow Box Telling Me Plugin Running in 'Com (7 posts)

    It seems to be just one thing after the next with this plugin. For some reason now on every new post to my website, there is an annoying yellow box which reads...

    Warning: this comments plugin is operating in compatibility mode, but has no posts yet. Consider specifying an explicit 'href' as suggested in the comments plugin documentation to take advantage of all plugin features.

    What the heck? How do I remove this thing?

    Here's the website I'm talking about: http://www.grantjkidney.com. Just check a newer post and see what I mean.

    I've got the same on two websites, only seems to be if there isn't any comments on a post.
    No doubt Facebook will have changed something once again and given no-one a heads up!

    Turns out the plugin does already cater for this scenario, switching to V2 only will remove the yellow box, however it also stops any previous comments from showing (unless you always had V2 selected).

    It's basically because FB have updated how comment URLs are passed to them, see: http://www.iannpurugganan.com/2011/12/fix-specifying-explicit-href-facebook.html for an explanation.

    Hopefully someone will figure out a way of removing the box and keeping previous comments!

    Yeah, this really needs to be resolved-- like yesterday.

    I've tried everything, even switching to v2 only.

    Now c'mon, I know someone has the solution to this and they're just floating by ignoring...
